This is the second world title for the Philippines in the tournament after a team from Bacolod captured the crown in 2003. A team from Norzagaray, Bulacan reached the final in 2015 but lost.

Represented this time by Bago City, the Filipinos scored a run in the second inning and added two more in the sixth to secure the victory.

Pitcher Erican Arnaiz struck out 15 batters aside from pulling off a diving catch in the fifth when Milford threatened to rally.
